 CINDI campaign

Within the activities of the GEOMON (Global Earth Observation and Monitoring of the Atmosphere) project and in cooperation with the projects and agencies involved in the CINDI () campaign, a workshop on NO2 profile retrieval from ground-based MAX-DOAS measurements will be held in Bremen on November 18 and 19, 2009. The aim of the workshop is to compare the available retrieval algorithms, to get an understanding of their strengths and weaknesses, to apply them to measurements taken at the CINDI campaign. The results of the intercomparison will be summarised in a joined publication.

Top How to find us:

You can reach the University of Bremen by tram no. 6 from both the airport (approx. 30 minutes) and the central station (about 15 minutes). Tickets are 2.20 € and are purchased at a ticket machine in the tram.

Please leave the tram at the stop "Universität - Naturwissenschaften 1" (stops are announced). You cross the rails to the left in the direction of travelling, cross the big street (Universitätsallee) and enter the small street over the bridge towards the physics department (NW1). Don't use the main entrance in the glass hall but rather use the small entry to the right which leads to the library. Take the lift or the stairs to the first floor and follow the signs to room U1050. See the sketch for an overview.
